As The World Turns Best Lines Friday 9/17/10


Provided By Eva

Bob: Most days, a small-town hospital is a pretty quiet place in the early hours of the morning. In those moments before the carts begin rattling down the hall and the doctors and nurses start their rounds, all you can hear is the steady hum of the machines. Everything else is silent. That's my favorite time to be here. Always has been. It's the one time of day when I can assure myself that on my watch, all is as it should be. Of course, I know that at any moment, my grand illusion of order will be shattered. The hospital will spring to life along with the rest of the people who call this town home. The world will have turned once more, and another day will have begun in Oakdale, Illinois. As a doctor who has spent his entire professional life in this town, I've come to know an awful lot about the people of Oakdale.

Bob: I've seen them get married, seen them get divorced. I've even seen them get married again, sometimes more than once. But who's counting?

Bob: And I've been the one to enjoy hearing of their many individual quirks, whether I understood them or not. I've seen them conquer their demons through sheer determination --

Bob: And love. Because love can be the lifesaver you need when you hit rock bottom and lose your way.

Bob: In fact, over the years, I've watched these people face every challenge you could possibly imagine --

Bob: And endings that come much too soon. Sometimes in the form of heartbreak, other times in hope.

Bob: But the biggest challenge of all may be the day you realize it's time to take the next step in life and walk away

Bob: I read once somewhere that a happy marriage is a long conversation that always seems too short

Emily: Wow. I have to admit, I honestly never thought I'd see the day where you would willingly walk away from your son.

Barbara: I am not walking away from my son, Emily. I'm setting him free. I'm setting both of us free. Thank you.

Bob: Death is part of life, but nothing can fully prepare you for a loss in your own family or that of a young man whom you knew all too briefly.

Holden: What are you thinking?

Lily: My mother and John. I can't believe I'm saying this. I'm worried about her.

Holden: Why?

Lily: What if things don't work out between the two of them? I mean, they tried before, and it didn't last.

Holden: Yeah, I know. But they're older. They're wiser. And I really do believe that they love each other. Otherwise, they never would have made it back together.

Lily: You think that's enough -- just loving each other?

Holden: I do. Sometimes it just take a few times to get it right. I'd better get going. I'll call you in the morning.

Lily: I'd like that. Holden -- I --

Holden: I know.

Bob: Oakdale may be an ordinary town filled with ordinary people. But it's an ordinary town where something extraordinary happens every day.

Kim: All set?

Bob: One more thing to do. What's that for?

Kim: Just a little encouragement.

Bob: I didn't realize how hard it would be to say goodbye.

Kim: Well, you know, darling, I don't think there should be goodbyes. Just good night. So, my sweetheart, it's time to have fun. I'll meet you out in the car. Take as much time as you need.

Bob: Good night.
